Irrelevant. China's power doesn't depend on it.
China's power doesn't depend on WHAT Sertorio?
On the building of the Kra Canal. Isn't that what was being discussed?...
Yes, but it will increase China’s power if they control the Kra Canal like the US once controlled the Panama Canal.

So it’s a welcome (to us but not to Sertorio) setback for the Socialist dictatorship.

(Sertorio loves anything Socialist, like China, N Korea and Cuba).

Once controlled it? They might have transferred soverignty over the canal zone to Panama but this does not necessarily mean that American control (by other means) has ended. That canal is far too strategicly important to the US for that to happen.
